BIG BASH: Our cricket tipster The Edge previews Sunday’s Big Bash game between Sydney Sixers v Brisbane Heat with a recommended BETDAQ bet.
The Big Bash returns to the Carrara Oval on Sunday morning as the Sydney Sixers take on the Brisbane Heat! This should be an interesting game between two up-and-down sides. The Heat have pulled themselves back into the tournament after sitting in last position for a while, and now because of the sides around mid-table losing points they have managed to tag themselves onto the mid-table group.
Chris Lynn fired for them against Melbourne Stars, scoring 48 runs off 23 balls and if he can stay in good touch they will score a lot of runs. He hasn’t had the best of years and was very poor in the CPL, but the signs are he’s coming into good form and that’s will be a huge positive for the Heat. I have to say I’ve found it difficult to get a full read on the Sydney Sixers – when I look at their team on paper I don’t see a team in second place. They were heavily beaten by the Perth Scorchers on Wednesday, collapsing all out for 97 and losing by 86 runs. Their bowling is decent though, and that has won them a few games.
I’m not surprised the market can’t spilt them on the BETDAQ Betting Exchange because I can only see a very close game here!
WEATHER AND PITCH WATCH:
The Carrara Oval has been excellent for batting in general. We have had some bad weather here though, so definitely check out the rain radar closer to the start time. We had a ten over game here on Thursday when the Heat scored 115/3 off their ten overs and Melbourne Stars managed 110/5 off their ten overs. Sydney Thunder managed to score 219/7 here so we can expect a good batting wicket. Interestingly, Sydney Sixers managed to keep Adelaide Strikers down to 150/4 here last Sunday and that was probably one of the best bowling performances recently. Despite that you’d have to fancy the bat to dominate the ball.
As I mentioned above, it’s no surprise to see such a close market here. We landed a nice bet with Brisbane Heat against the Melbourne Stars here recently and I feel the percentage call is a Heat back at 2.02 today. Both sides are very average but with Chris Lynn coming into form and good batting conditions expected here, I feel the bowling is less of an issue on this track. The Sixer bowling is the better bowling, but on a very good wicket the Heat batters can fire. The Sixer batting doesn’t have the x-factor in my opinion – they are a solid side but conditions suggest you need six hitters and I make the Heat slight value in a very close game.
The Edge Says:
One point win Brisbane Heat to beat Sydney Sixers at 2.02 with BETDAQ Exchange.

My main in-running strategy will focus around getting on the batting side here. OK< it’s easier said than done to set a good score or chase down a big target but the conditions definitely favour the batting side over the bowling side. If they don’t bat well then so be it. I’d be very keen to get on the team batting first, however I feel the Heat can score more runs here given their hitters.
The Sixers have been very hit-and-miss in the batting department, and I wouldn’t go very heavy on their batting but again given how weak the Heat bowling is they should go well here with good conditions. The Sixers were able to chase 193/5 at this ground to win by one wicket – I’d be keen to support Christian, Holder and Brathwaite and be against Vince as he probably bats too slow for this ground.
